College Goal Sunday to be held in Maryland January 24


Annapolis, MD (January 21, 2010) - College Goal Sunday – a popular and informative way for prospective students and parents to learn about how to apply for financial assistance and get other questions about college answered – will be held for the first time on January 24, 2010 at the Calvert County Library in Prince Frederick from 12-4.

College Goal Sunday will be held at various locations around the State. It gives students and parents who are struggling to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All students receiving Maryland scholarships and grants need to file the FAFSA.

For more information on College Goal Sunday and for locations, visit: http://www.collegegoalsundaymd.org

“College Goal Sunday is a terrific chance for students who may be reluctant to fill out the notoriously difficult FAFSA form a chance to sit with experts who will be more than happy to answer their questions and help them fill out this very important form,” Governor Martin O’Malley said. “The fact that there are various locations being spread throughout Maryland makes it easy for every student who wants to go to college and receive assistance the chance to do so.”

 

The Maryland Higher Education Commission is a 12-member coordinating board responsible for establishing statewide policies for Maryland public and independent colleges and universities and private career schools. It serves as an advocate for more than 350,000 college students in Maryland, for the State and its needs, and for business and industry in Maryland.
